Well if you are a 14 majors winners. I doubt anyone would tell him what to fit..I think it'll be more likely that he tell the fitter/designer what he want.

You mean shaft length, weight, flex etc etc? Wow....

No wonder he is not winning. A fitting process require a 1 year product cycle.

Maybe next year his clubs would be fitted right.

Peace

er......correction, it's should be he's not winning major. What I think it's he's still trying to be consistent with his swing. One day he's swinging like a champ while the next day, he's not. IMHO, he's a victim of his own high standard, in the past, when you win a couple of tournaments in the PGA tour, it's considered as a great successful year. But his great year was measured by the number of majors he won in that year. I would say this year he had a good but not great one.

Oops, wrong spell and I just killed the muggle golfer who came for fitting.


"Confundus" - ah... this spell works nicely. It really confuses the muggle.

As much as we are living in a digital age these days, life is far from being binary.. Nothing absolute 1 or 0, black/white.. flat yes/no. Truth is always somewhere in between. So to those saying flat NO, I wonder what else in life they are missing. Question

You may think we are missing a lot in life but I assure you that nothing is missing in my life and it is as fulfulling as ever. Please bear in mind that we are referring to golfers on why fittings will not make inconsistent golfers more consistent.

I have once posted a question which I did not get a reply. Let me recap and post a few more questions on club fittings and note that I am really a lousy golfer with an inconsistent swing: -

1. My angle of attack is different every time. At times I hit at the toe, at times heel and once in a blue moon hit it sweet. What lie angle should I be fitted with? Flat, standard or upright?

2. My tempo varies. At times my swing speed is 90mph. At times 70-80 range. Once in a blue moon, I managed to get 95mph. What shalf flex and torque should I get? A, R, S, X?

3. My smash factor can range from 1.2 - 1.35 due to my inconsistent swing. Again what shaft flex should I get?

4. At times I have a very handsy swing and release way too quick that I severely hook my shots. At times I slice badly into the jungle and once in a blue moon, I hit a straight shot. What grip size and shaft flex should I get?

5. At times I raise my body up in the downswing, at times I lower it. Even in my setup, at times I stand taller and at times shorter with the same club. What length should I get?

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I top, duff and mishit a lot of my shot. How ah? I think I better give up golf.

And what about overall weight for the clubs? What about swing weight? The list can go on and on. There are just so many factors when it comes to club fittings. If one has a very inconsistent swing, how can a club fitter determine the right specs for the golfer? The only way is to keep getting this golfer to go back regularly and make changes as the swing evolves. You may be one of those who are talented and benefited from it as a beginner but we are really talking about the general population here as to whether one should work on their swing first and fittings later, or they should jump straight into fittings while still working on their poor swing techniques.





haha.. I cant possibly know what u r missing in your life.. but i would not be expecting ppl with such closed minds to know what they are missing anyway! Perhaps some shallow cups are already full? What a Face

Shallow cups are already full? wow, I have never ever thought about that. You are the man! So are you the one with such closed mind?

Regardless of what you think and whether you're right or wrong, don't stop believing!

Have patience and I am sure the reply will come. Based on my observation, there was a reply after every several postings. At times it came out like a machine gun too. Wonder if he has ever shot his own foot. ROFL


You guys forgot the magic words.

Can I add


Beginners can be fitted...

But no need to be fitted... Till swing is slightly repeatable..

Even if fitted,

Also need to obtain a slightly repeatable swing after that..


Anyone dispute this?

I doubt anyone of us here or even Tiger's peers are in the position/qualified to make the above comment unless we have won 74 PGA championship and 14 Majors. Laughing
